I was born October 24th 1990 in Chisinau, Moldova and moved to Germany when I was five years old. At that time I discovered my passion for filmmaking with my parents' DV camera that I used for cheap action flicks with my Russian friends. After high school, I started studying communication science at the University of Hohenheim and the University of Oregon, before moving on to study directing at the Filmacademy Baden-Wuerttemberg in 2014.
